Tina Dupuy: John McCain makes my naughty list because he spearheaded a nontroversy campaign to preemptively take down the highly qualified Ambassador Susan Rice for Secretary of State.
Brent Budowsky: It appears that Senate Republicans are nominating Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) for the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize put together.
Tina Dupuy: Just like cutting taxes doesn’t increase revenue—making gun ownership unlimited doesn’t make us safer. It’s a lie. A fairy tale of the gun lobby. Completely unsupported by data or logic. A falsehood.
Bob Letcher: How can Senator Snowe’s “point” cause enough of a problem to lead her to give up her seat, and at the same time not be counted as an “issue” at President Obama’s re-election website?
Bob Letcher: Please notice that “We’re not working out issues any more” is *not* listed among the top seven issues in Barack Obama’s re-election plans.
John Peeler: The Republican primary electorate is predominantly reactionary, far-right-wing, on both economic and social issues, so it should not be so surprising that they are warming to Santorum.

Julie Driscoll: Yes, Former Governor Rod Blagojevich is guilty as sin, his conviction was just and he should do time – but not more time than your average violent criminal in Illinois.
Brent Budowsky: Rick Perry’s impersonation of Ron Paul is caused by Perry’s panic while his campaign collapses, while terrified Republicans try to entice the freshman governor and unqualified Chris Christie to enter the race.

Brent Budowsky: Elizabeth Warren, one of the most brilliantly qualified candidates in modern history to be passed over for an important post, appears poised to run for the Senate seat once held by the man we miss so much, Teddy Kennedy.
Brent Budowsky: If Elizabeth Warren runs, she would bring the serious, honest, baloney-free and respectful debate that is long overdue in American politics.
Mike Price: It’s like when Ella sings. Sang. When she wanted it to, her last note faded into itself, and then there was sweet silence wrapped into its own perfect moment.
